Does diversifying curricula reduce White/BAME attainment gaps?

Professor Kathleen M. Quinlan from the Centre of the Study for HE (CSHE) with Dr Barbara Adewumi and Dr Ellen Dowie from the Student Success Project have been awarded £60,000 from the Centre for Transforming Access and Student Outcomes (TASO) to evaluate the impact of diversifying curricula on the degree-awarding gap between white and Black, Asian and minority ethnic students. This research is also intended to illuminate the mechanisms through which curricular diversification reduces the degree-awarding gap and suggest areas for further curriculum development. The project will run until February 2022.
